Last night Sean Ransom, our Chief of Tech, was given a “Top Technologist” award along with nine other Rhode Islanders who all are doing great things with technology. The inaugral awards were jointly given by the Tech Collective and GoLocalProv.com to recognize exceptional IT practitioners, who are often over-worked and under-recognized (sounds like a certain someone we know!)
In addition to picking up a massive trophy, Sean received an additional nod for “Overall Achievement”, receiving the most votes from the judges for his work at BatchBlue and in the tech community.
While we certainly agree that Sean is a brilliant technologist, we know what he most values is his BatchBlue colleagues and the customers he works so tirelessly to serve. As he said when he received the award, “The technology aspect of my job is secondary to the being able to work with great people and support our great customers.”
Congratulations to Sean and to all the Tech10 award winners – thanks for all you do to improve the lives of our respective clients, communities and customers through technology.
